Essence of Beauty Blender Brush Review

I was wandering around CVS a few days ago. I blame my aimless wandering on some sort of alien force that swayed me to enter the doors of a US drugstore because I’d honestly never set foot in a drugstore otherwise…wasn’t me…I was possessed….had to be that.

Anyway!

I was wandering aimlessly and I came across the Essence of Beauty Blender Brush and promptly purchased it!

This isn’t my first run in with Essence of Beauty makeup brushes and I sure do wish I’d just take the plunge already and purchase a few as they are damn good brushes for the price!

The Essence of Beauty Blender Brush is a pocket size wonder that works fantastic at buffing in mineral powder, adding a dash of blush to cheeks, or works fab at sweeping a thin layer of powder under the eyes for a quick touch up. It blends cheek color seamlessly onto my face and tucks nicely into my purse for quickie touch ups. I’m not partial to mineral foundation but this brush definitely makes application way easier and much nicer, possibly making a mineral foundation lover out of me as it blends flawlessly.

The bristles are super soft, the handle is nice and chubby so it fits nice and steady in my hand, and did I mention it’s only $7.99 USD? Where can you get such a nice brush at that price?

Honestly, if you’re looking for some seriously great brushes at a budget friendly price and not wanting to dish out for costly MAC or counter brushes check out the Essence of Beauty line up at CVS as it’s really a great steal and a deal.

Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Concealer

The Muse so needs to try out Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Concealer!

Neutrogena+Mineral+Sheers+Concealer

Have you see these? Check it!

I rarely get excited about drugstore cosmetics but this looks promising to say the least. When I was purchasing my cheese mascara at Walgreens I ran across a display of these but sadly all the lighter shades were sold out.

I’m generally curious about the product as it reminds me of Laura Mercier or Bobbi Brown’s dual concealers which has the creamy concealer on top and a silky white setting powder on the bottom. I’m not sure but that Flickr photo says $12.79 USD and don’t quote me but I could have sworn it was $8.99 USD around these parts.

Must. have. it. now.

Honestly, it seems promising to say the least and hopefully I can locate it as I’m highly curious if it’s worth the splurge! You know me, concealer gets me happy!

Anyone try?

Do share!

Beauty on a Budget: Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara Review

Ha who would think that mascara that costs $3.79 USD would actually work? Count the Muse amused, delighted, and surprised at how well her testing with Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara went!

Wet+n%27+Wild+Lash+Intense+Mascara+2

Read ahead to find out the deets!

I ran across Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara recently while I was at Walgreens and I must say it actually works quite well. Last Intense makes the standard round of promises such as fuller, thicker lashes but at $3.79 USD my dubious nature set in. Seriously, mascara that’s under $4 USD…..doesn’t the idea of the price tag alone scare the beegees out of you?

Turns out you can have thicker, longer, and fatter lashes for under $4 USD. Ha, who would guessed?

Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara sports the plastic applicator that’s taken the drugstore world by storm lately. Everywhere you look plastic applicators are popping up! What do you think of plastic applicators? I find in some cases that they work rather well but in others not so great. In this case the applicator is the key to creating beautifully long, thick lashes and works quite well. The applicator has no curve and is straight in style with longer bristles on one side and shorter on the other. The best way to apply the mascara is to use the longer bristles to brush a few coats of mascara on and use the shorter end to work product through your lashes while curling them upwards. It does a take a little bit of work to get the knack of using it without creating a mess but a few tries later and I had quite nice results.

Results are pretty amazing! My lashes were considerably thicker, longer, and full of volume. Likey! It wears well through the day without smudging, flaking, or smearing. The cute portable size and purple packaging appeals although it is a tiny bit cheap looking but hey the product works, that counts for something!

What’s not to like? If you’re on a budget and looking for a cheap mascara that gives longer, fuller lashes this is well worth a try! I didn’t LOVE it but I definitely liked it!

Anyone try out Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara?

What did you think?

What are your fav budget mascara scores?
